“Lovely hotel and amazing service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2011

My husband and I stayed at The Castle for one night to celebrate our first Wedding Anniversary. We had booked after seeing a 'Groupon' voucher for a reduced rate for Dinner, Bed and Breakfast.
The hotel is very attractive from the outside and backs onto the High Street so everything is close by.
From the moment we pulled into the car park to the moment we left the service was absolutely second to none and in no way were we treated differently for having booked using a voucher. Staff were friendly and it felt like nothing would be too muich trouble.
The room was slightly dated in decor but very clean and comfortable...
We at at the Brazz restaurant attached to the hotel and the food was absolutely beautiful! I can definitely recommend the Steak!
All in all a fantastic hotel - we enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Stayed for one night with my wife, our first night away on our own for years, and they couldn't have been nicer - fantastic room, lovely card to welcome us, and a complimentary bottle of wine!
Generally hotel is extremely well appointed with friendly staff and a super setting and location. Highly recommended.

Stayed for one night only for work in this area. Hotel is very centrally located, very quaint and oldy worldy with appropriate decor. Staff were very friendly and the room was clean and a good size for a single room.
Did not try the restaurant or other facilities however it made a welcome change from staying in the usual 'chain' hotels. The free wifi was a great addition and very helpful in an area of low 3G.

Choosing a hotel for a few days holiday in the UK has always been for us an adventure: irrespective how much you pay, one never quite knows what quality one will get.
to us, The Castle at Taunton has been a very pleasant surprise:
- a very nicely done up, spacious room
- attentive, helpful staff
- a very good breakfast.
Being located very centrally the hotel is well positioned for meeting friends/family business partners in town - small downside: some noise on one of the nights from a nearby music pub.

My husband and I stayed a night at the Castle Hotel and as we drove up the hotel looked stunning, hung with wisteria blossom. The hotel was in the centre of town and had the added bonus of a car park. A member of staff immediately came over to our car and helped us with our bags. This level of service continued throughout our stay.

Our room, a garden suite, was large and very comfortable. As I looked over to the lovely garden I could see a small wedding group enjoying champagne on the lawn in the April sun. It was the prefect setting.

We had supper in the brasserie which was good with plenty of choice on the menu. The cooked breakfast was excellent and most of the food on offer had been locally sourced.

It was a real shame we could only stay one night but when we are in the area again we shall stay at this hotel.

I stayed one night for business. The room was spacious and very nicely decorated and furmished. Staff were very helpful. I didnt eat in the hotel restaurant instead I went to the Castle Green Inn next door - and the food their was nice. The hotel breakfast was delicious and there was a good selection. Location is very central .

We received a very warm welcome at the Castle and the staff couldn't have been more helpful or attentive. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! The food was excellent and we will definiley be returning when work takes us back to Taunton next year
